Daily Prayer 365

Day 44
Friday, October 14, 2022


Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. —Philippians 4:5–7

Six years before he died American philosopher William James filled out a questionnaire about religious experience. He was asked among other things ‘Do you pray?’ His answer was forthright: ‘I can’t possibly pray. I feel foolish and artificial.’ —Carol Zaleski, Christian Century, February 22, 2003, Foolish prayer: Pray as you can, not as you can’t 

Let your gentleness draw near O God of peace, so that the impossibility of prayer might become our daily bread. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
